Outdoor In-person Worship, 9am Sundays!

Join us Sundays for outdoor in-person worship in the Memorial Garden area, either in parked cars or, if you bring a lawn chair, spaced physically distanced in the grass. No advanced reservations are needed. If the lawn area is already full, you can stay in your car and tune into our FM transmitter on your radio. Thanks to all our helpers making this happen! Aside from staying home and watching worship online, this is the safest worship opportunity we can offer you!

In-person Indoor Worship:

Contemporary worship, Saturdays at 5:30pm. Traditional worship, Sundays at 11am.  As we seek to keep everyone safe during this global pandemic, indoor worship requires the following:
1—Pre-registration online OR by phoning the church office for the upcoming week's worship.  Please RSVP by noon on the Friday preceding that weekend's worship.

Saturday, May 15th, 5:30pm -- Register here.   
Sunday, May 16th, 11am -- Register here.

2—Wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth and stay physically distanced for the entirety of the time you are inside the building. If you are physically unable to wear a mask, please come to an outdoor worship or attend worship online.

3—File a COVID Waiver for Worship.  The Rules and Waiver to Attend Indoor Worship are found on the Newsletters & Forms page of this website. Or you may sign a Waiver beforehand in the Church Office or at the church when you first come to indoor worship. 

Five hundred years ago, Martin Luther shared some still applicable advice when he and his people were dealing with a critical health crisis: "I shall ask God mercifully to protect us. Then I shall fumigate, help purify the air, administer medicine and take it. I shall avoid places and persons where my presence is not needed in order not to become contaminated and thus perchance inflict and pollute others and so cause their death as a result of my negligence."
